USAID missions and their host-country partners often require quick-response technical assistance in planning, activity design, and implementation of water sector programs. The
Quick Response Technical Activities project under the Integrated Water and Coastal Resources Management indefinite quantity contract deals with a variety of issues — from water resource management to fisheries and aquaculture.
Through the project, Chemonics is able to respond immediately to requests to assess and address critical issues in water resources management. This project is used on an as-needed basis around the world to provide technical assistance to USAID and local staff. Technical assistance included a variety of services, including coastal resources management, sanitation and hygiene, water law and policy, watershed management, and water-related tourism activities.
